Default where to take 16 hour maintenance class

I am looking for options on where and when I can take the two day light sport inspection course. The only classes I find are Rainbow. Does anyone else offer these classes?

I took mine through EAA. If you are a member you get a little break in price. Check the EAA website for upcoming courses.

Rainbow provides numerous courses around the country throughout the year. I took mine in Apopka, Florida.

Does anyone know of a course put on by someone other than Rainbow?
They seem to be the only game in town.

California Power Systems may offer this course. I know they have been putting on the Rotax service, maintenance and heavy maintenance courses.

It's worth checking out.

Rainbow was the only one I found. I went down to Denton TX for the weekend when they had it there.

Default Repairman's course

Last year I could find no options. Took mine at Oshkosh directly after the big event. Brian and Carol Carpenter, Rainbow Aviation Services, did a fantastic job. You won't have any regrets.
